Going Furnish Green-er: an effort to shrink our ecological footprint
With Earth Day approaching on April 22nd, we at Furnish Green found ourselves examining what we can do to make our practices even “greener.” By re-selling vintage furniture we keep these items out of landfills and minimize the impact of manufactured goods; we also use recycled materials for cleaning, packing, and filing and we repurpose as much as we can.
We’re striving to do more though, so in that spirit, we aim to lessen the amount of wasted materials used for wrapping up sold items. We will only shrink-wrap your purchased pieces if specifically requested, and we encourage you to BYOB: bring your own bags & blankets. If you provide the blanket, we’ll get it safely taped and tucked for transport! Note: we’ll automatically wrap glass pieces and mirrors because of their fragile nature.
Our goal is still, as always, to provide excellent customer service and assist in the safe transportation of your vintage purchases. Please let us know via e-mail, phone, or in person if you would prefer anything you’ve bought to be wrapped in plastic.
And don’t forget that you can take home your purchased items in an FG Tote bag, instead of using paper or plastic! $6 in the shop & online.
